What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged male breasts. This condition is one that can result in a female-like chest due to the abnormal growth of breast tissue. Oftentimes, gynecomastia is caused by an unknown hormonal issue. It may also be caused by certain medications, steroids, obesity, or genetics. Men with this condition generally feel self-conscious, more so in circumstances where the chest area is shown, such as by the pool or in the gym. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin offers cosmetic breast treatment for men in Brea and Beverly Hills, CA who suffer from gynecomastia. This cosmetic treatment has a very high success rate. It is considered one of the more popular cosmetic procedures for men at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery.

Can Gynecomastia Treatment Help Me?

Male breast reduction treatment is reserved for men who have enlarged breasts that cannot be reduced through diet and exercise. If you're frustrated by the appearance of your chest (and are otherwise healthy and at an ideal weight), you may benefit from this procedure at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery. Male teens may also benefit from gynecomastia treatment; however, a future procedure may be necessary later during adulthood if breast tissue continues to develop. In your initial consultation with Dr. Corbin, he'll go over treatment options, including the possibility of moving forward with surgery to repair the condition.

Surgical Technique

Liposuction is generally used during surgery for gynecomastia. Performed under general anesthesia, liposuction helps remove pockets of excess fat from the internal chest region. Afterward, any lax skin will be removed to create a tighter appearance, and then the nipple will be placed in a proper position. In most cases, this treatment strategy requires an incision close to where the glandular tissue collects. Once the fat and loose skin have been appropriately handled, Dr. Corbin will pull and tighten the remaining skin.

What Should I Expect after Surgery?

At the conclusion of your gynecomastia treatment, the chest will be supported with a medical garment to help decrease swelling. In advanced cases where a more invasive technique was used, a drainage tube may be placed to assist with fluid. The results following this procedure are immediately visible, and most men are extremely satisfied with the physical change. Any incisions made during surgery will take time to heal, and scarring is usually barely visible. With your new, more masculine-looking chest, you may get medical clearance from Dr. Corbin to engage in exercise and weight training, which will help to complement the end results.
